About

Portland’s only internationally focused market, LIFM provides fresh, affordable, and culturally unique produce to the diverse Lents community and offers farm-direct sales opportunities for immigrant, emerging farmers, and new business owners. In addition to standard market produce, the market features a variety of unique fresh produce from Hmong, Latino, & Russian farmers.

The market opened in 1999 as the Lents Community Market, an idea born out of a small group of Lents residents and community organizations that wanted a positive place in their neighborhood that would also serve low-income shoppers. In the Spring of 2005, Friends of Zenger Farm started hosting monthly meetings with residents interested in working to re-start the market. This group later developed into what is now the Lents Food Group – a community group working to improve healthy food choices in Lents. A successful 3 market pilot season began in 2006 and in 2007, Friends of Zenger farm ran its first full 20-market season. The market focuses on highlighting the diversity of the East Portland neighborhoods and is proud to provide healthy food access and education to the community.

LIFM is also host to Food Scouts, a unique program for children between the ages of 5 and 12. Food Scouts participants receive $2 in tokens each week to spend on vegetables, fruit and food-producing plants. The Food Scouts booth also offers hands-on activities each week focused on farms, food and fun. Food Scouts is a partnership between Zenger Farm and Whole Foods Market.  To sign up, visit the Food Scouts booth at market.
